The main features of GADDS remain unchanged:

  1. Data is requested using a standard web-browser.
  2. Only the data required by the client is delivered to the client.
  3. Choose the data format (ASCII columns or Intrepid Database) for data delivery, and the required datum and projection.
  4. Both vector (line and point) and raster (grid) datasets are delivered to the user.
